PAPILLION, Neb. — After a recent incident, a Nebraska carwash owner claims that his business has been targeted about 35 times over the past decade and is installing additional security cameras, according to an article by WOWT 6 News.
However, added the article, this recent incident was different because the owner has “clear video that will hopefully lead to the identification of suspects.”
According to the article, Ivan Lentsch estimates that in the past decade, thieves have stolen about $2,000 from his carwash cash and change machines.
Lentsch believes that the total cost of these robberies, including repair and replacement costs, out of his own pocket equal $17,000.
“There are utility bills to pay, there’s a mortgage to pay. So eventually it’s taking money out of the pocket that would feed my family,” said Lentsch.
Currently Lentsch has eight cameras protecting his carwash, but he’s adding eight more, noted the release.
“There certainly would be satisfaction in pulling them off the street and getting them in jail,” said Lentsch.
